+[[!tag announce]]
+As part of our ongoing donation campaign, we already explained you [[why
+we needed donations|why_we_need_donations]] and [[how we use these donations|what_we_do_with_your_money]]. Today we are
+sharing with you our plans for the next years:
+ - **Easier adoption**
+ - **Revamp Tails Greeter**: make it easier to configure Tails when starting ([[!tails_ticket 5464]])
+ - **Rethink the installation and upgrade process**: take a step back and reflect
+ on the future of Tails Installer, the installation on Windows and
+ Mac, and automatic upgrades ([[!tails_ticket 11679]])
+ - **Graphical installation method for Mac OS**: what would it take
+ to document tools other than Tails Installer to do a graphical
+ installation from Mac OS? ([[!tails_ticket 11682]])
+ - **Explain better what Tails is** and what makes it so awesome ([[!tails_ticket 9814]])
+ - **Security hardening**
+ - **Reproducible build of the ISO image**: protect users and
+ developers from a malicious build of our ISO image ([[!tails_ticket 5630]])
+ - **Persistent Tor state**: have persistent entry guards ([[!tails_ticket 5462]])
+ - **HTTPS mirrors**: serve our downloads over HTTPS only ([[!tails_ticket 9796]])
+ - **Persistent seed for random number generator**: have better entropy and stronger crypto ([[!tails_ticket 7675]])
+ - **Browser fingerprint**: compare and reevaluate the web fingerprint of Tor Browser inside and outside Tails ([[!tails_ticket 5362]])
+ - **Community**
+ - **Web platform for translators**: make it easier to translate our website ([[!tails_ticket 10034]])
+ - **Social contract**: guiding principles that reflects the commitment to our ideals ([[!tails_ticket 11669]])
+ - **Personas**: study and describe our user base to take better design decisions ([[!tails_ticket 11162]])
+ - **Improvements to WhisperBack**: make it easier and faster to answer support requests ([[!tails_ticket 9799]], [[!tails_ticket 9800]])
+ - **Sustainability**
+ - **Tails based on Debian Stretch** ([Tails 3.0](
+ - **Better server infrastructure**: to handle our growing needs on continuous integration and have a backup server ([[!tails_ticket 11680]], [[!tails_ticket 6185]])
+ - **Test Tails on ARM**: starting with a few Chromebooks supported by Debian ([[!tails_ticket 11677]])
+ - **Tails on tablets**: specify what upstream projects (GNOME, Debian, etc.) should work on to help porting Tails to tablets and smartphones ([[!tails_ticket 10039]])
+ - **Fundraising**
+ - **Have more reliable and steady sources of income**
+ - **Depend less on grants from governments**
+ - **New applications and features**
+ - **Graphical interface for the Additional Packages persistent feature**: allow users to customize which applications are available in their Tails ([[!tails_ticket 5996]] [[!tails_ticket 9059]])
+ - **Backups**: provide a graphical tool to backup the persistent volume ([[!tails_ticket 5301]])
+ - **Screen locker**: allow users to lock their session with a password ([[!tails_ticket 5684]])
+ - **Tails Server**: run onion services from Tails (VoIP chat rooms, collaboration tools, web servers, messaging servers, etc.) ([[!tails_ticket 5688]])
+ - **Tails Verifier**: allow verifying whether a Tails installation has been corrupted ([[!tails_ticket 7496]])
+ - **TrueCrypt support in GNOME**: graphical utilities to mount TrueCrypt volumes ([[!tails_ticket 11684]], [[!tails_ticket 6337]])
+These are all items that we find important and want to prioritize. But making
+them a reality will require lots of work, time, and money; on top of all the
+day-to-day work that we do to simply keep Tails alive.
+If you want us to get there faster, please take one minute to make a donation.
+If your organization is interested in funding one of these tasks in
+particular, please contact us at [[]]
